EDUCATION: University Science Education - The Listening Project
Postdoctoral Research Fellow (non-tenure-track)
The Department of Education at Tufts University, in collaboration with the departments of Physics and Biology, invites applications for a full-time postdoctoral scholar to work with The Listening Project, supported by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Initiative for Inclusive Excellence. The initial appointment is for the academic year 2017-2018, renewable for up to three years total.
The project aims to help instructors elicit, recognize, and engage with the productive beginnings of science in all students' thinking. We emphasize including and supporting students whose voices and reasoning can be missed in traditional courses.
Faculty and teaching assistants will work in groups to collect, study, and make sense of examples of students' work in introductory science, using video from classes and copies of assignments and exams. The first focus will be on interpreting students' thinking and experience, including when that is challenging to do. From there, the groups will consider possibilities for what might help those students make progress toward disciplinary practices of learning and knowledge of canonical ideas.
The postdoctoral scholar will be part of the project leadership team, with responsibilities to help lead instructor working groups, collect and study data from target introductory classes in biology and in physics, and collaborate in research on learning, teaching, and change in higher education.
The position requires a PhD, graduate preparation in a natural science, scholarly background in STEM discipline-based education research, and expertise in responsive teaching, ideally with an emphasis on underrepresented groups.
Applications must be submitted via Interfolio at Please submit a letter of application, including descriptions of your background and research interests, and a CV; please also arrange for three confidential reference letters, which the writers should submit directly. Contact department administrator Michelle Pare at for questions about the position or the application process.
